A quick check of the Rode website doesn't show this "modern M50" mic this thread is about. Is it actually going to ship? Have they even named it yet? Status update please. Anyone?

I'd love to know this too. AFAIK the new mic is called the TFM-50.

Rode posted this on Twitter on March 28 of this year:

Nice recording, although it's somewhat difficult (for an outsider) to know how much 'Røde sound' there is in this - but the CM3 seems very capable as spot mic for violin ;-> Is this without eq?

Yes without eq, although with 4 omni mics across the front I rolled off below 30Hz on the outriggers to prevent a surfeit of traffic rumble and general omni 'floom/bloom' of the low end.

I thought there should be more separation between violin and orchestra, but that may have been the soloists instrument and/or playing rather than the mic. I also thought I heard someone speaking or making noises at one point. was that the conductor? Can't take 'em anywhere!

At the risk of annoying you again, here's a lengthy background video on the making of the TFM50. What's my point this time, apart from repeat annoyance ?

It gives some insight into construction and philosophy behind the power supply (bad news if you're intent on a Decca Tree arrangement), the capsule, protective screen and transformer. Also, the announcement of the NT49 variable pattern mic, using several of the same design innovations**. No release date, so I'm guessing 2018 ?

If all you want is a firm release date, just pass on by to the next thread.....

**....almost forgot, also details on the valve powered NTRV Ribbon mic....

Just found this TFM50 thread. I came back to GS a month or so ago after a very long absence, so I’m not across what’s been going on and missed this thread when it first started.

That’s me in the Rode video interview with the great Tony Faulkner. I apologise for some of the inaccuracies in that video, I’d woken very early in the morning to get to the Sydney Opera House to follow the set up after a very late night at a jazz club. With set ups and rehearsals/soundchecks being what they are, Tony wasn’t ready for interviewing until late afternoon, at which point the coffee was not working any more and brain was fried. I watched it for the first time a moment ago; it’s much better than I thought it would be. However, I did an expanded print version of the interview a short time later and added a lot more stuff taken from Tony via email (along with some fact-checking of stuff I got wrong on the day of the interview, ahem). You can find it here:
